Names have been changed to protect the innocent...and my husband...and me...but not the dog. His name is Dexter.

Our Animals Don't Like Us Anymore

That's kind of how I'm feeling right about now. Our beautiful cat Lucy has now added pooping in random places to throwing up the entire contents of his stomach at any given moment. It's a good thing he's pretty because he can be a little high maintenance. I knew about the throwing up before he came to live with us, although it has gotten worse. I got him in high school so we go way back. Which is why I keep cleaning up after him.

But now, it's Dexter. Not only does he keep running away whenever he gets the chance, but now he's getting in on the poop action. Yes, you read that right. My perfectly healthy golden lab pooped throughout the basement today. Lovely. He doesn't have old and feeble as an excuse. I'm not sure what his problem is though I'm starting to wonder if he's having issues with getting scooted further and further down the totem pole of life. I'm assuming he thinks its poopy.

The poop. The poop is getting to me. And let's not discuss potty training right now either. I just don't have it in me. But if you come to my house, be careful where you step.....

I'm thinking that Dexter may be feeling a little threatened by Lucy. If the "King" can get a way with it, how about Dex, who was your first pet as a family. There is so much drama amongst animals I never understood, until Sasha revolted. If somebody has to find new digs, it should probably be Lucy. Do you want to borrow the Spot Bot? Makes dealing with their messes a lot easier.

I hear ya on the pooping. Just when I thought I was done with the potty training I go and add another student.
